"Voices of My Comrades brings us directly into the heart and soul of America's WWII soldiers. Chronologically and simultaneously portrayed on multiple fronts, Carol Kelly's collection presents a full panorama of front-line action through the eyes of those who experienced it." -- Frank Selden, author of Finding Faith in Fury
"Voices of My Comrades is a compelling account of what took place during World War II in the words of those who were there. This collection of letters, stories and reminiscences of so many reveal the bravery, heroism and just plain determination shown by the men and women serving our country at such a critical point in history. A sobering reminder of what it means to fight for what you believe in." -- Sara Horn, author of A Greater Freedom: Stories of Faith from Operation Iraqi Freedom
"Voices of My Comrades provides great insight into the personal experiences and sacrifices of many members of the WWII generation, who by history and fate were handed extraordinary challenges, and who responded overwhelmingly to the call to duty." -- Bob Dole
"Voices of my Comrades features so many exhilarating and untold accounts, it is as if the story of the war were being told for the first time. This book is an extraordinary achievement and a much-needed contribution to the canon of great World War II literature." -- Andrew Carroll, author of War Letters and Behind the Lines
"This collection of personal stories from America's citizen-soldiers, sailors, and airmen forcefully reminds us of their many contributions and sacrifices, not just in combat, but in ferrying aircraft across Africa, pushing Lend-Lease supplies through Iran to Russia, defending desolate outposts in Iceland and the Aleutians, or enduring long months of often brutal captivity. Kelly weaves these unassuming, frank accounts into a compelling narrative." -- Peter Kindsvatter, author of American Soldiers: Ground Combat in the World Wars, Korea and Vietnam
"Tracks the years of WWII through stories from 240 veterans." -- Publishers Weekly, August 6, 2007
